The Coaching Factory's Chelsea C. Hayes, who trains millennials and executives in workplace conduct, imagines a gentler tone in this proposed letter.
Here's the letter that Steve Harvey wrote to his staff:

Here's Chelsea's version:
Good morning team, welcome back!
I cannot thank you enough for making Season 4 of the 'Steve Harvey' show one of the best experiences of my life. Your hard work is what makes it happen.
I’ve been experiencing some challenges around finding time to eat, prepare, and check in with my family when we’re not shooting. This has become increasingly difficult and exhausting for me. For Season 5, please allow my dressing room to be a safe space where I can be alone so I can be sure to bring my absolute A game to each and every one of you.
If any of you have ideas on a structured system we can implement outside of my dressing room for more touch points, please send those ideas to ABC (any representative you choose) by ABC (any date you choose).
I can’t wait for this new season, thank you for all that you do!
What do you think? Can you catch more flies with honey? Or was Steve justified in his tone?
